Cate Kinkaid is just dipping her toe into the world of private investigating until one of the many résumés she has floating around lands her a real job. All she has to do is determine that a particular woman lives at a particular address. Simple, right? When the big and brooding house happens to contain a dead body, this routine PI job turns out to be anything but simple. Is Cate in over her head?

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 02, 2012 – Fans of McCourtney s Ivy Malone Mystery series will quickly get the clue that the Cate Kinkaid Files will be just as quirky, charming, and fun. Cate Kinkaid sees her job as an assistant private investigator with Belmont Investigations as a stop-gap until she gets a real job. She just needs to find out whether Willow Bishop lives at a certain address, then write a report. But one quick stop turns into one huge mystery when Cate stumbles onto a dead body and a host of suspects, including the elusive Willow. As Cate follows the clues and questions the suspects the Whodunit book club, a greedy niece, a sleazy boyfriend she becomes enamored of her PI job, not to mention the helpful Mitch Berenski. Things turns nasty with two attempts on her life in the same day, but Cate, despite her misgivings, triumphs. Myriad suspects, plot twists, good dialogue, romance: mystery fans will find it all in good form.
